Speakeasy
$$
“Hop Sing Laundromat’s air of mystery enhances its allure — and the outstanding drinks don’t hurt, either. The hidden Chinatown cocktail bar features a strict set of rules enforced by owner/proprietor Lê. Dressing inappropriately, taking photos inside, or doing something else to break one of them is to risk being added to the bar’s banned list. And no one wants to be banned from a beautiful bar with top-shelf liquor, fresh juices squeezed to order, and some of the best recipes around. Need a strong cocktail right after work? Hop Sing’s happy hour is one of the best in the city. - From Eater Philadelphia”
